Summary: Football jock Alex taunts Victor Tran, a new student, until Victor knocks Alex down with one swift kick. It's the first day of school, and Victor is in trouble even before the first bell rings. Victor didn't ask to attend Lumen Christi High where there are no other Vietnamese students. Highly skilled in martial arts, but with his ability unknown to his new classmates, Victor must harness his anger and resist fighting Alex again. If Victor dismissed from Lumen, his family will pay the price. His father stands to lose his job as the school janitor, and Bernadette, his sister who struggles with a disability will lose her chance to attend a prestigious music school. Alex continues to antagonize Victor, and as Victor finds it increasingly hard to resist a fight, his father reminds him of the true purpose of martial arts, the secret of the "horse stance," and the real meaning of sacrificial love. Based on Christ's own endurance of suffering in the Scourging at the Pillar, this action drama engage viewers of all ages both with amazing martial arts sequences and its lessons of wisdom, strength, friendship and sacrifice for others
